Hi, everyone. I’m yukipapapa, a writer.
Now we’re in the third episode of “NEW GAME”!
The scenario for this episode is written by the director, Mr. Fujiwara! I knew it was going to be a godly one, and it indeed is as expected with Aoba-chan’s growth with a bitter and sweet story!
1. Feeling connected by being late together!? Slapstick comedy in front of the office!
Aoba-chan woke up late, as her mother didn’t wake her up in time and she may be late for work.
In the train on the way to the office, she sees her senior colleague in the character team, Yun-san.
Yun-san had almost given up on being on time at work, but Aoba-chan encouraged her to run from the station.
Once they started running from the station, it turned out that Aoba-chan was even slower than Yun-san. She took Yun-san’s offered hand, trying to make a convulsive effort at the last moment, but she tripped and fell and showed her klutziness!
After explaining what had happened, her senior decided to write off her being late. But Aoba-chan roused up as she thought it was her own fault that she was being too lax.
Yun-san appreciates that Aoba-chan really puts her all into everything.
As there wasn’t any major interaction between them, this became a good episode for her to get to know Aoba-chan.
2. Life is never about happy events! Aoba-chan is depressed.
Even though Aoba-chan roused her motivation for work, she was told to fix up the CG modeling she was confident with.
She was so shocked at the evaluation she received for the first time, and she stayed late at work and worked harder.
Aoba-chan is such a hard and diligent worker. She took notes on all the advise, was repeatedly told to fix her work, and she made it better little by little to complete the work!
This anime is what people call “cute girls doing cute things”, but the main plot of the story is Aoba-chan working hard!
She experiences the harshness and severity of her work and definitely grows up step by step.
3. Even though it’s rough and harsh, people around her support her.
Aoba-chan is asked for a retake repeatedly and people around her obviously see her efforts.
Yun-san gave her some sweets and encouraged her, Hifumi-san praised her modeling on chat screen, and Rin-san gave her advice gently when she was feeling low.
Rin-san also directly told her that they have got big expectations of her.
Aoba-chan was so excited at what Rin-san told her, when her best friend Nenecchi called her on the phone.
While talking on the phone, she realized what she was supposed to do.
The next morning, with everyone’s support and cheers, she finished the details of the villager model and it was finally approved!
Needless to say she is a kind of girl who tries her best. I felt a lump in my throat to see that people around her have a high opinion of her and how they love her.
In the next episode, we are going to hear the famous line we all know!
I can’t wait!
